Smart Strip™ Paint Remover

Product Description and Use:

Smart Strip™ is a revolutionary paint remover that is safe for the user, the substrate and the environment. It is non-hazardous, pH neutal, and is 100% biodegradable. It will strip up to 15 layers in a single application. The water based strippe is extremely effective for removing multiple layers or architectural and tough industrial coatings from virtually all exterior and interior surfaces. It is exceptional for lead-based paint removal. It is excellent for intricate surfaces. Because it is a paste, it is easily applied by brush, roller or conventional airless spray. Smart Strip™ is formulated to remain wet and effective over extended periods of time and does not require the use of Peel Away® paper. Dwell time will vary depending on the type of coating, number of layers, and temperature. For best results, allow paste to dwell overnight or longer. Remove softened/lifted paint using a scraper, taping knife, squeegee, or power washer. The stripped surface is then rinsed with water or denatured alchol to remove remaining residue. Allow surface to dry thoroughly before repainting.

Protect areas where stripping is not desired. Plants should be covered.

Application and Spread Rate:

Using brush, roller or airless spray, apply approximately 1/6" to 1/8" thick according to the age, number of layers and type of coating being removed. Airless spray is the most cost effective way to apply product. Always start at the lowest pressure setting and slowly build pressure until an adequate fan pattern has been achieved. High pressure is not required or desired. When trying to build film thickness of the remover, two separate applications are recommended. Apply a light first coat and allow it to dwell for about 30 minutes. Then apply a second coat to build the film to the desired thickness. Smart Strip TM provides an average spread rate of 45 to 50 square feet per gallon; results may vary.


Remove softened/lifted paint using a scraper, taping knife, squeegee or power washer. Agitate tough to remove residue with a stiff nylon brush or scouring pad, paying particular attention to crevices, grooves and cracks. Exterior stripped surfaces should be rinsed thoroughly with a power washer. Interior surfaces can be rinsed using a spray bottle or pail, a sponge and water, or denatured alcohol to remove remaining residue.
